Sketches of Cedar Riverside by Mohamud Mumin

ASI welcomes photographer and visual storyteller Mohamud Mumin for the debut of his Sketches of Cedar Riverside project which combines photographs and recorded “soundscapes” in a sensory approach that conveys the rich history of Minneapolis’ West Bank. This eclectic neighborhood has long welcomed Scandinavian and other immigrants, including, more recently, Somali residents.

Mumin’s photographs and non-visual work, shaped by his own experience, examine the shared history of the neighborhood’s immigrants and unearth a deeper sense of Cedar Riverside’s history, expressing the texture of human interactions within a distinct urban landscape.

Mumin received a 2016 ASI Malmberg Fellowship which supports the study of our archives, collections and programs and enabled him to use ASI material to help map the neighborhood’s cultural history.
